La Quinta High School - Mr. Wells - AP World History

Hello! We’ve got a lot of great times ahead of us this year. Here at La Quinta, I teach five classes of AP World History. I absolutely love teaching here. I grew up in the area, but graduated from Fountain Valley High School. Don’t worry because I bleed blue and gold now. I have a Bachelor’s degree and teaching credential in Social Science from Cal State Long Beach.
Course Description: The Advanced Placement World History: Modern (WHAP) is a challenging full year course that explores the year 1200 to the present day. WHAP is considered the equivalent of a semester college survey course in Modern World history (equal three credits).  In AP World History: Modern, students investigate significant events, individuals, developments, and processes from 1200 to the present. Students develop and use the same skills, practices, and methods employed by historians: analyzing primary and secondary sources; developing historical arguments; making historical connections; and utilizing reasoning about comparison, causation, and continuity and change over time. The course provides six themes that students explore throughout the course in order to make connections among historical developments in different times and places: humans and the environment, cultural developments and interactions, governance, economic systems, social interactions and organization, and technology and innovation
